Enid Marx (1902-1998) was a textile designer, printmaker and illustrator who, alongside her contemporaries Eric Ravilious and Edward Bawden, defined mid-century design.
The exhibition coincides with the 20th anniversary of her death and is the most comprehensive retrospective of her work mounted in the last 40 years. It brings together over 150 pieces from private and public collections, many displayed for the first time.
Best known for her iconic London underground fabrics, she was one of the first ever women to be named a Royal Designer for Industry. She also created textiles for the wartime Utility Furniture Scheme, patterned paper for Curwen Press, book covers for King Penguin and the stamps for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation.
